Assistant Professor, Mathematics & Physics Department
Dr. Marco Scipioni teaches introductory and higher level physics, specializing in
optical engineering, and has cofounded a local startup here in Charlotte that develops
textiles with novel optical properties. He is originally from Verona, Italy.
As a scholar, Dr. Scipioni’s academic focus is to help establish a new interdisciplinary
research program in optical physics, which complements and is intertwined with other
research activities at Queens. As an instructor, he is dedicated to designing and
teaching physics courses that provide students with solid and versatile scientific
knowledge, enabling them to fully appreciate the significance and important role of
physics in modern technology and everyday life.
Dr. Scipioni is always available to meet with any student interested in pursuing the
new B.A. degree in physics or a minor in physics. An understanding of physics provides
a solid scientific and mathematical background, which is useful and rewarding for
many academic and professional careers.
